    hmm no wait a minute, if you are hetero and choose to be celibate does that mean what?
    Nothing on the topic. You confuse the act with the attraction.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The four common orientations - Hetero, Home, Bi, and Asexual.

    Just because it's biology doesn't take away your responsibility for your actions, in most cases. It means we need to take it into account, like roughly 3% to 5% of the population playing for the other team and some who will play with anyone willing to play that night.

    How on earth does focusing on a mental picture of a man while having sex with the woman mean the man is straight? You are only further proving the reality that homosexuality is not a choice. Why to homosexuals commit suicide then? Why don't they just choose to be straight? Here is a challenge for you: choose to be gay. Try really hard. You seem so sure its a choice--make it yourself. Then, once you have proven it, choose to be straight again. No long term problems. It would be incredibly easy to prove it were all a choice if you could do that...but you can't.

    Sexuality is not a choice. Period.
    I attempted to explain it to him, but he simply doesn't understand. Sexuality is far more than friction. If I don't feel attraction to someone I can't choose to be attracted to them, you either are or are not. Thus idea that he has that you can force yourself to become attracted to someone is a recipe for disaster.

    But he is the kind of guy that thinks everybody us exactly like him. He repeatedly said that all people are bisexual with nothing to back it up. Personally I wouldn't put much weight into what he says.

    It makes perfect sense maquiscat. Phenology was deemed obsolete when better science psychology, came along. Its hard to come up with examples and sometimes you have to spell it out.

    I completely agree with you on this. Putting it into am either or categorical circumstance really is unrealistic. Frankly it appears to be a divide on partisan political lines. notice that conservatives and liberals agree how they are supposed to. Everybody is afraid to zig when everybody zags. But formulating your own opinion based not on what the jerk with the "R" or the "D" next to his name tells you to think is difficult.

    That means you are a celibate heterosexual.
